Brentford have climbed the table in recent weeks after three consecutive wins in the league, and they look like posing a threat to anyone that they face in the league right now.
One of the main reasons why Brentford remain so dangerous when going forward is because of their front three made up of Said Benrahma, Ollie Watkins and Bryan Mbeumo.
All three forwards have been singing off the same hym sheet this season where Brentford are concerned, as the Bees have netted 18 goals in the league this season, the same amount as the likes of Swansea City and Sheffield Wednesday who occupy a play-off spot.
Watkins is flourishing in his new role of centre forward and being the focal point of manager Thomas Frank’s 4-3-3, and the striker is showing no signs of slowing down his goalscoring form as he’s currently enjoying his best season at Griffin Park since arriving in the summer of 2017.
Mbeumo has adapted to English football well with his performances since arriving from French side Troyes in the summer, and the 20-year-old’s nippy play out on the wing as well as his creativity and an eye for goal makes him the perfect winger for Brentford to have in their side.
Is Brentford's front three the best in the Championship?
24-year-old winger Benrahma is in his second season of football within England after spending the rest of his career in France, and the Algerian winger hasn’t been afraid to take on anyone this season and has always stepped up in the big situations.
The Bees’ front three has proved that it’s dangerous when all playing together, as QPR found out on Monday when Brentford’s front three helped to rip them apart away from home.
Brentford’s attack is so dangerous because the three rarely get switched around by their manager, they each get told their positions and they stick to their roles perfectly.
The three of them have pace to burn, all three can score and all three are capable of creating when they get into the right areas.
The strike trio will likely be having their services courted by other clubs before they get a chance to really make a name for themselves, Watkins already beginning to attract Premier League interest thanks to his 10 league goals already this season.
Whoever comes up against Thomas Frank’s front three will need to be wary of the threat that all three pose to their defenders, but this could be just the beginning of how far the three can go as they show off their talents in the Championship.
